Get excited, y'all, SEC Media Days are here! It's that time of year when a bunch of players and coaches and media folks meet up in Hoover, Ala. to talk about how damn excited they are for the season and nothing of any real substance happens but everybody gets all worked up anyway because dammit it means football is getting closer.
Media polls will be released, players will wear obnoxious outfits in the name of avant garde fashion, Steve Spurrier will say something that makes a bunch of people mad, Bret Bielema will be an ass and Nick Saban will get annoyed every time someone asks who his starting quarterback is.
If those sorts of things interests you, you can tune in all week with SEC Network and WatchESPN. The Ole Miss contingent -- Hugh Freeze, Evan Engram, Mike Hilton and C.J. Johnson -- will be speaking on Thursday.
